RCMP remind public that vigilante justice could be considered a criminal offenceRCMP remind public that vigilante justice could be considered a criminal offence

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John RCMP are thanking the public for the report of a malnourished dog.On June 15, RCMP seized the dog and took it to the North Peace SPCA shelter.Police say SPCA staff brought the 16-year-old dog to a local veterinarian office to be examined and found the dog to be in very poor health. It was determined that the most compassionate plan of action was for the dog to be euthanized.RCMP contacted the owner and learned they had been MedEvac and hospitalized for the past two months. The owner entrusted their dog to the care of others on short notice while receiving medical care.Since then, the RCMP responded to a report of a mischief file at the owner’s address where a vehicle was vandalized as a result of some member of the public’s perceived lack of care for the dog.RCMP remind the public that residents should channel their frustrations in a more constructive manner and not to seek retaliation or revenge when only knowing one side of the story.Police say vigilante justice is not acceptable and, depending on the actions taken, could be prosecuted as a criminal offence.last_img read more

This Is Why King Mohammed VI Just Sacked 3 Ministers andThis Is Why King Mohammed VI Just Sacked 3 Ministers and

Rabat – Marred by sluggishness and the lack of coherence, cooperation, and a strategic vision, the Manarat Al Moutawsit development project in Al Hoceima has fallen short, driving King Mohammed VI to sack a number of ministers and senior officials accountable for the project’s “dysfunctions.”Ill omens had been evident since the program’s preparatory phase, which took place between 2014 and 2015. The number of projects chosen as part of the Manarat Al Moutawsit “did not meet a strategic vision integrated and shared by all stakeholders,” said the Court of Auditors in a report presented to the King on Tuesday.On October 17, 2015 the Framework Convention of the project was signed in Tetouan, during which the Ministry of the Interior and the Wilaya of the Region presented to the King the general framework of the project. Yet essential documents were missing, such as an exhaustive list of projects to be carried out, their consistency, updated cost estimates, and a budget. To oversee the project, the convention set a supervision and monitoring committee chaired by the governor of the province of Al Hoceima and a central monitoring commission.The Court of Auditors ruled that the committee should have been headed by the Minister of the Interior, and not the governor of the province, “especially during the start-up phase to deal with the constraints relating to the consistency of projects, the mobilization of land, financing, and finding the necessary solutions in case of difficulties.This committee was also unable to mobilize the other partners for “actual contribution and reactivity,” nor was it capable of giving “the necessary momentum to launch the program on a solid foundation.”Adding to this, the court noted that the estimated schedule of the planned projects and their budgets were not announced until the meeting of the Commission Monitoring Center held in February 2017 – that is, 16 months after the signing of the convention.Procrastination and Petty ExcusesThe implementation of the program has suffered a slow start, asserts the court.From the signing of the Framework Convention until February 2017, the Court of Auditors noted that most stakeholders at both central and locals levels had significant delays in carrying out their duties.By the end of 2016, there were only five fully implemented projects, at a budget of MAD 146.8 million, and 45 ongoing projects at MAD 565 million, out of a total 644 projects planned.Stakeholders justified the delay by citing an alleged “non-compliance programming of budgetary appropriations and difficulties in mobilizing land,” which the Court found to be “baseless.”Further, at the end of September 2017, 12 agreements were signed by different stakeholders with the Agency for the Promotion and Development of the North (APDN), which took over responsibility for management of a large number of the projects.The Court of Auditors considered that the decision to entrust the agency with the implementation of a significant number of projects, for a total amount of almost MAD 3 billion representing more than 46 percent of the overall budget, engendered risks in terms of monitoring, costs, and deadlines.The court noted the suspicious “eagerness” in the Ministries of Culture, the Environment, Health, Youth, and Sports, and others, to hand over their assigned projects to the APDN. “This eagerness implies that these departments want to do away with their commitments at the expense of the Agency, even though they have the required capacities and expertise to achieve similar projects by themselves, as they typically do throughout the national territory.”Upon receiving the report from the first president of the Court of Auditors, Driss Jettou, King Mohammed VI responded to the “serious dysfunctions” in the projects by sacking a significant number of ministers and high officials.The King said that he was “disappointed in their performance at their respective ministries and [he] would never again entrust them with any public missions.” read more

UN relief agencies appeal for at least 10 million to tackle SudaneseUN relief agencies appeal for at least 10 million to tackle Sudanese

17 August 2007United Nations humanitarian agencies and their partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are launching an appeal for more than $10 million to deal with widespread floods in Sudan that have destroyed thousands of homes and inundated farmlands, towns and villages. The UN has already allocated $4.76 million from its locally-managed Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) to help in relief efforts, but the world body’s humanitarian arm says much more is needed as it joins NGOs in stepping up efforts to help the estimated 365,000 Sudanese who have been affected by the floods.Stephanie Bunker, a spokesperson for the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said the humanitarian community is still assessing exactly what the overall needs are of the people affected. A particular concern is the provision of safe drinking water.“However, despite incomplete assessments, more than $10 million on the ground will be needed,” she said.The Office of the Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan says at least 30,000 homes have been destroyed by the floods, which began last month following torrential rains and have been concentrated in the east, centre and south of the country. Another 150,000 people have been left without shelter.More than 40,000 hectares of cropland has been damaged, while farmers have also lost over 12,000 livestock and 16,000 chickens.The UN is working closely with the Sudanese Government and aid groups to coordinate the relief response, particularly given forecasts that the country faces further serious flood threats until the end of the wet season next month. read more

Eritrea needs urgent help to stave off looming humanitarian crisis UN officialEritrea needs urgent help to stave off looming humanitarian crisis UN official

Faced with recovering from a devastating war with Ethiopia and a crop-killing drought, Eritrea requires urgent help from the international community to stave off a looming humanitarian disaster, a top United Nations relief official said today.”Right now, Eritreans need to commit many of their resources to coping with the residual effects of war, but can’t because of the drought. It makes my heart heavy to think what will happen a few months down the road if the international community does not respond quickly,” Kenzo Oshima, UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, said as he wrapped up his three-day mission to the country today.Eritrea was the last stop of a 12-day, four-nation tour through the Horn of Africa for Mr. Oshima, who went to the region to observe the effects of the drought and to mobilize international support for the countries suffering food shortages.While in Eritrea, Mr. Oshima discussed the humanitarian situation with President Isaias Afwerki, government officials, UN agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and donor representatives. He also visited the drought stricken areas of Gash Barka and Debub.”What we saw in Gash Barka and Debub Provinces left no doubt that the humanitarian situation in Eritrea is dire and requires urgent assistance from the international community,” he said. “The response must be broad enough to address the underlying factors that have made Eritrea so vulnerable to drought.”Mr. Oshima also saw near-total crop failure in Barentu, an area that traditionally produces 80 per cent of the country’s sorghum. Near Tsorona, a town trying hard to rebuild after being razed two years ago, he visited camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) unable to return home because their land has been mined or their homes destroyed.The Relief Coordinator underscored that, in responding to the crisis, food aid must be complemented by equally important programmes for water and sanitation, health and care of livestock. In addition to helping with immediate needs, he urged the government and the international community to tackle issues such as post-war reconstruction, the safe return of refugees and IDPs, landmines and poverty. “If issues like these are not addressed, we may well find ourselves with a similar emergency on our hands in a few years,” he warned.In November, the UN system is expected to launch a consolidated appeal for Eritrea, which will detail the number of people in need in 2003 and the plan for helping them. read more

Brock team Niagara company head to Queens Park to talk wine researchBrock team Niagara company head to Queens Park to talk wine research

Could syrup that could potentially fight cancer be coming soon to a supermarket near you?Brock University biologist Jeff Stuart has teamed up with the Niagara-based company Sweet and Sticky to research ways of fortifying the company’s Cabernet Franc and Vidal ice syrups. Ice syrup is a non-alcoholic product made from icewine grapes that is sold as a gourmet ingredient throughout the world.Stuart, students Shehab Selim and Breanne Gillie, and Sweet and Sticky president Steve Murdza are heading to Queen’s Park Wednesday, Feb. 17 for an event showcasing research across Ontario.Stuart, who is a professor of Biological Sciences and a research fellow with Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute, and his team are studying how to introduce resveratrol and other polyphenols extracted from grape skins into the company’s products.Resveratrol, a molecule that research has shown to slow the growth of cancer cells and tumours, is found in the “pomace” of grapes, that is, skins and seeds of the fruit remaining after grapes have been pressed.A good amount of resveratrol makes its way into wines – particularly reds – from pomace during the fermentation process of regular wine production, mainly because resveratrol is soluble in ethanol.But, “in ice syrup, the levels of resveratrol and related molecules are lower, because it’s not a fermentation process so there is no alcohol,” explains Stuart. “Our challenge was to increase these levels.”Since resveratrol is not soluble in water, Stuart and his team had to figure out a way to increase its concentration in ice syrup. They hit upon the idea of using a carrier molecule.“The carrier molecule is hydrophilic, so it likes to be in water,” explains Stuart. “One resveratrol molecule fits neatly inside the carrier molecule’s structure and there it is shielded from water while the outside structure of carrier is interacting with the surrounding water. This way the amount of resveratrol that can be packed into water, or ice syrup, is greatly increased. The carrier molecule is safe to consume and virtually tasteless itself.The carrier molecule’s structure is shaped like a donut or a life preserver, which has the added benefit of protecting resveratrol during the initial stages of digestion.“Once it gets into the GI tract the carrier molecule is metabolized and resveratrol is released and taken up into the bloodstream,” says Stuart. “Lots of times, molecules can have well-documented effects, but if you can’t get them to the sites where they exert these effects, then it doesn’t matter,” he says. The carrier helps resveratrol and other beneficial molecules to reach their site of absorption.“This is a way to go from having relatively low levels of these resveratrol molecules in ice syrup to having potentially more than is found in any wines,” explains Stuart.“With the recent bad press on sugar, this infused ice syrup product would actually allow the company to promote ice syrup as a sugar that could have the reality of being healthy for you,” says Sweet and Sticky president Steve Murdza.Stuart says he and his team still need to do more testing before their innovation makes its way into Sweet and Sticky’s products “but the preliminary results are promising and the research continues to be funded and to progress toward commercialization.”Student Gillie is excited about the research she and her colleagues have been conducting.“It obviously has big health implications but there are also ecological implications,” she says. “It’s a big way to reduce food waste that we put into the environment, and it creates an extra revenue stream for farmers, which is great.”The research team’s February 17 visit to Queen’s Park is part of Research Matters’ Queen’s Park Pop-Up Research Park, an annual event in which researchers from universities across Ontario showcase their work to politicians and policy makers.This year’s theme focuses on student involvement in university-industry/community partnerships.“I think it’s good that politicians are trying to learn more about science and it’s going to be interesting that we get to know more about politics,” says student Selim.Research Matters is a collaborative project among Ontario’s 21 publicly assisted universities to build new bridges between university researchers and the broader public. The Council of Ontario Universities coordinates the project.Brock University student Breanne Gillie harvests grapes for collaborative research between Brock’s CCOVI and the Sticky and Sweet company in Niagara. read more

Ohio States Jalin Marshall ready for extended roleOhio States Jalin Marshall ready for extended role

Redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall (17) carries the ball during a game against Michigan State on Nov. 8 in East Lansing, Mich. OSU won, 49-37. Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorAfter weeks of sharing the spotlight with Dontre Wilson, redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall is set to have his own stage on Saturday.With sophomore H-back Wilson out for the foreseeable future with a broken foot, Marshall is expected to get the majority of the reps at H-back, something he said he is excited for.“When me and Dontre were sharing the position, we did share reps, so this just gives me the opportunity to play a little bit more,” Marshall said Wednesday. “I feel like I am ready to take on that role to play a little bit more at the H-back position.”Marshall has lined up in multiple spots all over the field this season, including quarterback in a wildcat formation.The Middletown, Ohio, native played quarterback throughout high school and threw for 2,240 yards as a senior.Marshall said he’s had fun taking on different roles in the offense.“I definitely enjoy it. It is fun for me to be at different positions around the field. I get a kick out of playing quarterback just because that is where I came from,” Marshall said. “Every time they say ‘go in at quarterback,’ I take it to the most advantage I can.”OSU coach Urban Meyer compared Marshall’s skill set to one of his former players and a current NFL star.“The thing I always look at is Joe Haden was a quarterback in high school. You’re not just going to put your best player out there for 30 plays a game at corner,” Meyer said. “If he’s a great player, he’s going to touch the football.”Marshall has gotten exactly 45 touches this season — 17 carries, 14 receptions, 11 punt returns, two kick returns and one pass attempt — and has scored three times in his first season of action as a Buckeye.Marshall said his experience at quarterback has helped him on the field this season at the H-back spot.“We are taught as receivers to read defenses because you have to know when you are getting the ball and when you are not,” Marshall said. “It helped me out a bit coming from the quarterback position.”He added that he tries to keep his arm warm on the sideline, just in case he is called upon to attempt a pass.“I try to swing it around a little bit, I don’t try to give it away to the fans as much,” Marshall said. “They are yelling down, ‘Jalin, throw one, throw one,’ I don’t control that so I just try to warm up a little bit with the quarterbacks before the game just in case I have to go out there and throw a pass.”Marshall has attempted one pass this season, as a throw downfield intended for redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas fell incomplete in a game against Illinois.After the game against the Fighting Illini, Meyer said Marshall’s role in the offense is expanding not only because of his skill set, but also because of necessity.“We’ve been working on Jalin playing quarterback first because he’s very talented,” Meyer said Nov. 1. “Second of all … you hear these stories, I’ve never been down to our third- and fourth-string quarterback, but you always try to be ready in case something happens. And he’s a gifted guy. So we’re going to expand his package each week.”Despite the excitement of extended playing time, Marshall said he and the Buckeyes are focused on the task at hand: beating Minnesota.“We got to take it one week at a time,” Marshall said. “This is a big game, Minnesota just cracked the top-25 (in the College Football Playoff rankings) and I feel like we have to prepare this week, just as we did last week.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers at noon Saturday in Minneapolis. read more

Child sexual abuse victims denied compensation because they consentedChild sexual abuse victims denied compensation because they consented

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. One case highlighted by Victim Support involved a 12-year-old girl who was plied with alcohol, led into the woods and sexually assaulted by a 21-year-old man. Despite the fact that the man pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 13, the victim was denied compensation. This was because she had gone into the woods “voluntarily”, had not been a victim of violence, she emerged “happily” from the woods and that she had recently had sexual relations with another child around her own age.In another case a girl who was raped and sexually assaulted at the age of 14 by a gang of men aged over 30 was denied compensation because “she had not been the victim of non-consensual sexual acts”. In another case cited by Barnardo’s, a boy who was groomed online from the age of 13 and sexually exploited by 23 men, 21 of whom were found guilty of offences including grooming and sexual assault, was refused compensation because “on balance of probabilities the evidence suggests that [the child] consented in fact to the sexual contact with the individuals concerned.” A Freedom of Information request made by Victim Support showed that since the compensation scheme came into effect in 2012 693 cases where compensation for child sexual abuse was claimed from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority have been refused. The group of charities, which also includes Liberty  and the National Working Group, has written to Justice Secretary David Lidington asking for the guidelines to be changed.Dawn Thomas, Rape Crisis England & Wales co-chair said: “It’s not only bizarre but also inappropriate and harmful that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority applies a different definition of consent from the law and, as a result, routinely tell victims and survivors of child sexual abuse and exploitation that they consented to the sexual violence perpetrated against them.”An MoJ spokesman said: “Child sexual abuse is abhorrent and this government is committed to doing everything possible to support victims.“We will look closely at the concerns raised by these charities that some victims are not getting the compensation they deserve.“The issue of compensation for victims is currently being examined by the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse, and the Ministry of Justice is contributing to its important work.” Child victims of sexual abuse are being denied compensation because a Government agency rules that they “consented” to their abuse, a group of charities has warned. Charities including Barnardo’s, Victim Support and Rape Crisis say that children as young as 12 are being denied compensation because of evidence that they went along with their abuse.Children aged under 16 cannot consent to sexual activity under the law, unless they are aged over 13 and the defendant reasonably believed they were over 16. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, which gives out compensation of up to £44,000 to victims of sexual abuse and other crimes, uses a different set of criteria to decide whether victims are eligible for compensation. In evidence submitted to the Independent Inquiry on Child Sexual Abuse last year, Barnardo’s said that CICA had responded to a claim from one of the children it supported by saying that “it considers consent as a question of fact, and this determines eligibility for compensation. “A victim can consent in fact even though in law they may be deemed not to have consented.” The charities say that as a result children are being made to feel that they are to blame for the abuse. last_img read more

Game of Thrones Director Explains Why Arya Ambushed the Night KingGame of Thrones Director Explains Why Arya Ambushed the Night King

first_imgStay on target When Arya Stark killed the Night King in “The Long Night,” many Game of Thrones fans were shocked and did not expect her to save Winterfell. Now, Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik is explaining why we didn’t see how Arya Stark reached the Night King before the big moment.Arya Stark’s kill scene during “The Long Night” episode was a turning point for the Game of Thrones plot: When Bran Stark and the Night King are about to confront each other, Arya Stark suddenly comes out of nowhere and leaps toward the Night King. However, viewers know that it wasn’t the end for the heroine, who was held up by the Night King until she pulled her signature weapon move.“In the end we felt it didn’t matter how she got there — what mattered was setting up that moment when the Night King catches her mid-leap and we think she’s done for, then she pulls her knife switch and takes him out,” Sapochnik told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. “I loved Maisie’s performance post the takedown as well, sharing a moment with her brother, Bran [Stark].”#MondayMotivation: #NotToday pic.twitter.com/90El60wkKG— Game of Thrones (@GameOfThrones) April 29, 2019Sapochnik discussed why he scrapped a scene where Arya Stark would be shown traveling through the Weirwood forest, since it would destroy the timing of the Night King’s death.“I questioned everything and we worked long and hard to find the right balance of credibility versus wish fulfillment. Then we shot it and reshot it and found that what was really important was rhythm,” Sapochnik added. “At one point there was an elaborate plan to have her fight her way into the Weirwood forest, but as we progressed we realized she’d already done that earlier in the episode, so it felt like a repeat.”Even though Game of Thrones received mixed reviews for its last season, the series received 32 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama, Lead Actor in a Drama, and Lead Actress in a Drama.

Rumor Microsoft to possibly release a Windows 8 tabletRumor Microsoft to possibly release a Windows 8 tablet

first_img Microsoft to release a tablet OS in 2012 While some reporters and bloggers are speculating that this may be part of Windows attempt to create an iPad killer, few are pointing out the holes in that theory. First is the fact that Windows current model of licensing out the Windows 7 operating system to third party tablet makers is relatively low risk and highly profitable for Microsoft. Few companies are willing to rock the boat on a profitable business model. The second reason that Microsoft trying to make their own iPad killer would be unlikely is that history is not on their side. Many of us remember the ill fate of the Zune, which at the time was launched as competition to the now ubiquitous iPod family of device. Then there is the Kin, a Microsoft phone, which failed to take a bite out of the iPhone popularity. It was pulled from the market after failing to sell. If Microsoft has learned it lesson about coming late to market against Apple in mobile devices, they’ll stick with their profitable licensing agreements and let their partners with stronger track records in mobile, like Motorola, try to make an iPad killer.

Astronomers characterize two superEarths in a distant planetary systemAstronomers characterize two superEarths in a distant planetary system

first_img Citation: Astronomers characterize two ‘super-Earths’ in a distant planetary system (2017, May 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-05-astronomers-characterize-super-earths-distant-planetary.html More information: K2-106, a system containing a metal rich planet and a planet of lower density, arXiv:1705.04163 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/abs/1705.04163AbstractAims: Planets in the mass-range from 2 to 15 MEarth are very diverse. Some of them have very low, others very high densities. Method: We determined the masses, radii and the densities for the two transiting planets orbiting K2-106, which have been previously found. The inner one is an ultra-short period planet with an orbital period of 0.57 days. The outer planet has orbital period of 13.3 days. Results: The two planets have similar masses, though very different densities. For K2-106b we derive M_p=7.69+/-0.82 MEarth, Rp=1.52+/-0.16 REarth, and a high density of 12.0 -3.2+4.8 gcm-3. For K2-106c, we find 6.79+/-2.29 MEarth, R_p=2.59+/-0.27 REarth and a relatively low density of 2.4-1.1+1.6 gcm-3. Conclusions: Since the systems contains two planets of almost the same mass, but different distances from the host star, it is an excellent laboratory to study atmospheric escape. Comparing the mass and radius of the inner planet with composition models implies that it has an iron core containing at least 50% of its mass. Such a high metal content is surprising, particularly given that the star has solar abundance. We discuss various formation scenarios for this unusual planet. Best-fit light curves to planet K2-106 b. Light curve is folded to the orbital period of the planet. Credit: Guenther et al., 2017. Located approximately 825 light years away from the Earth, K2-106 is a 5 billion-year-old star of spectral type G5. With a radius of about 0.83 solar radii, the star is 7 percent less massive than the sun. In 2016, researchers detected two planets transiting this star with orbital periods of 0.57 and 13.3 days.Now, Guenther’s team obtained absolute and relative radial velocity measurements of K2-106 using five different spectrographs worldwide in order to reveal more detailed information about this planetary system. The new observations show that the two exoplanets have almost the same mass, but orbit at different distances from the host, which makes the system an excellent laboratory to study atmospheric escape processes.”We determined the masses, radii and the densities for the two transiting planets orbiting K2-106, which have been previously found,” the paper reads.The researchers found that the planet closest to the star—K2-106 b—has a radius of about 1.52 Earth radii and is about 7.7 times more massive. Therefore, it has a high density of approximately 12 g cm-3.K2-106 c is bigger in size as its radius is about 2.6 Earth radii. However, the planet is less massive—6.8 Earth masses—which gives a relatively low density of 2.4 g cm-3.The team also revealed new information about the composition of K2-106 b. They assume that it is a metal-rich planet with an iron core containing at least 50 percent of its mass.”Ultra-short-period planets forming close to the star should all be iron-rich. Clearly, more research in this field is needed, but the results so far obtained show that studies of ultra-short period planets can give us key information on how and where low-mass planets form. The high metal content of the planet is thus very interesting, particularly because the host star has solar metallicity,” the authors wrote in the paper.The researchers noted that the K2-106 is particularly interesting because it hosts an ultra-short period planet subject to a strong stellar irradiation and an outer planet at a relatively large distance from the host star, where the atmospheric escape rate is expected to be low. Thus this system could provide important insights into the formation and evolution of planets. However, many observations are still needed to uncover more details about K2-106 and its planets.”K2-106 is a very interesting system that deserves further studies. (…) The next logical steps are search for the extended, escaping exosphere atmosphere of K2-106 b that has been suggest by Mura (et al. 2011) by obtaining spectroscopic transit observations in a similar way as we have done for CoRoT-7b (Guenther et al. 2011),” the astronomers concluded.

Building on the alliance, the GE Healthymagination Fund, an equity fund that invests in promising healthcare technology companies, is investing in Veran. The financial terms were undisclosed.Veran manufactures the ig4 navigation system, which integrates multi-modality information at the point of care in the interventional suite, combining that information with electromagnetic tracking of instruments with imbedded sensors. The system aims to provide interventional clinicians with the best information when they need it most: when they are steering an instrument inside the human body to perform an oncologic intervention such as cancer biopsy and ablation.   GE Healthcare is a provider of comprehensive X-ray imaging solutions giving clinicians the tools they need for image-based diagnosis and minimally invasive therapy. The strategic alliance between the two businesses, combined with expanded capabilities in product research and development, will accelerate development of high-value integrated technologies for the diagnosis and care of suspected cancer patients.Earlier this year, GE Healthcare became the exclusive distributor and reseller of the ig4 navigation system in the United States. The system is compatible with GE’s Innova imaging systems, which acquire CT-like patient images of the target organ(s). The images can then be exported to the navigation system in the same imaging suite, during the same interventional procedure. The resulting displayed image provides navigation information to help physicians insert biopsy needles, ablation (RF, cryotherapy, and microwave) probes and other devices through the skin more quickly. For more information: www.gehealthcare.com or www.veranmedical.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Image courtesy of NinePoint Medical News | Interventional Radiology | July 03, 2019 Varian Purchasing Embolic Bead Assets from Boston Scientific Varian announced it has signed an asset purchase agreement to acquire the Boston Scientific portfolio of drug-loadable… read more Feature | Henry Ford Hospital | May 21, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Innovations in Radiotherapy and Radiology at Henry Ford Hospital Henry Ford Hospital thought leaders regularly speak at the radiation oncology and radiology conferences about new res read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more last_img read more

Join the clubWhile British Airways’s Executive Club may sound like you have to be an international jet-setter and criss-cross the Atlantic several times a week to join, membership is actually free. Registering will put you in the basic ‘Blue’ Tier, in which you’ll automatically start collecting Avios (the airline’s version of reward points) on flight purchases as well as member offers and the chance to rack up Tier points in order to progress to the next level. Make it to the Bronze Tier (300 Tier points on BA and partner flights) and you’ll start getting perks like priority check-in and boarding as well as being able to select a seat a whole week before you fly. Silver Tier (600 points) comes with extra luggage allowance among other things, while the Gold Tier (1500 points) pretty much guarantees you a First class experience, complete with exclusive lounges and bonus rewards.

British Airways offers free checked baggage on most flights from the UK, but if you’ve purchased a ‘hand luggage only’ ticket, you will need to pay extra for checked bags. It’s worth doing this before you get to the BA check in – fees can be double if you pay at the airport. Here’s a summary of BA’s hold luggage rules:‘Hand baggage only’ tickets: depending on your destination and departure airport, you’ll pay between £20 and £35 online in advance per checked bag, and between £40 and £65 if you pay at the airport.In general hold luggage can’t be bigger than 90x75x43cm in sizeAll other flights, including Economy, Premium Economy, Business come with a free checked bag allowanceClub World and First Class travellers can get three bags weighing 32kg each for free, again, depending on where you’re flying to and fromTo check your allowance or fees, log in to your booking on the BA website or browse this table of charges.Can I bring musical instruments or sports equipment on British Airways flights?You are allowed to bring additional items like guitars as part of your hand baggage, if they fit the above size restrictionsBA will try to accommodate larger and heavier musical instruments up to 45kg and measuring 190cm x 75cm x 65cm if you give 24 hours notice before departureSporting goods like tennis rackets and diving equipment must be under 23kg and up to 56cm x 45cm x 25cm to be counted as hand luggage, otherwise you may have to pay a heavy/oversized bag chargeYou can bring a bicycle up to 190cm in length if it’s packed in a bicycle bag with tyres deflated and pedals and handlebars fixed to minimise width 2 hand luggage bags per passenger: one cabin bag and one handbag or laptop bagBritish Airways hand baggage allowance includes duty-free purchased at the airportChildren (under 2) allowed 1 additional cabin bag56x45x25cm maximum cabin baggage dimensions40x30x15cm maximum size for additional small bag45x36x20cm on flights arriving and departing from Brazil23kg maximum weightIf your hand luggage is over the size or weight limit, or you have more than your allowance, it will be checked in and count towards your checked bag allowanceCheck British Airways website to find out the cost for your particular route ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepartReturnCabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map How can I make the most of the British Airways hand luggage allowance?If you’re determined to travel light, read on for our top tips on getting all of your luggage on board:1. Always check your hand luggage dimensionsAll airlines have slightly different luggage restrictions so always measure your hand luggage bags well before flying, especially when travelling with an airline for the first time. Remember, British Airways’s baggage allowance includes handles and wheels, so don’t get caught out by that awkward baggage gauge at the last minute! If you’re in danger of exceeding the limitations, look for a new cabin bag – most luggage stores now make it easy to find ‘cabin-approved’ rucksacks and suitcases. Unsure where to start?Use our carry-on bag guide to review the best of the bunch. Image: Jun Seita, CC BY 2.0.4. Fly to BrazilWe’re not kidding. As mentioned above, there are different, more generous, rules regarding British Airways luggage allowance on flights in and out of Brazil. In fact, several other international airlines including American Airlines make the same exceptions. Why? Well, officially, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) stipulates that flights to and from Brazil must allow two checked bags weighing up to 32kg and hand baggage can measure up to 45cm (although the number of cabin bags vary between destination/origin countries). Some speculate that this allows travellers to buy more Brazilian goods to bring home. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) states that the absolute maximum weight for checked luggage is 32kg, though airlines can choose to restrict this to a lower weight, so it may be that Brazil is just maxing out the amount holidaymakers can take. Either way, even if the dazzling white beaches and upcoming Rio 2016 Olympics aren’t enough of an incentive, Brazil seems to be a good choice for people who like to travel with all their home comforts!

Grab a guaranteeMost airlines can’t promise that your cabin bags will make it into the overhead lockers, meaning you may be left waiting around the baggage carousel, just for your overnight bag to Edinburgh. But British Airways does guarantee your smaller bag will be taken onboard, as long as you attach one of their yellow tags to the bag (available at the airport check-in desk). Make sure the tag’s visible before you board, and you’ll never have to go without your ear plugs or your travel pillow again!3. Shop around for a fare dealBritish Airways is no budget airline and has an impressive range of airfare grades, meaning you don’t have to struggle with the zip on your tiny suitcase! Even what the airline terms ‘Economy’ class includes a lot more than the seat, with snacks, drinks and family-friendly extras. On short-haul BA flights, Economy comes with three options: Basic, Plus and Plus Flex (Europe) or Business UK (British Airways UK domestic). While Basic is the ‘hand luggage only’ option you may be looking for, Plus comes with free checked baggage and Business UK allows you priority boarding so you can easily slide your holdall into the lockers before everyone else gets there. Alternatively, British Airways Premium Economy is available on some international flights and lends you a little more legroom for your oversized handbag, plus two pieces of hold luggage (23kg each) included in the price.

But if you have heavier items, like an SLR camera or sports equipment to transport, consider companies like Delta which has no weight restrictions on hand luggage apart from at selected airports.* For a full round-up of cabin bag restrictions across major airlines, see our comparison table.Liked these tips?

Reilly arrives ahead of the screening of “The Sisters Brothers?” during the Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, on Saturday, September 8, 2018. John C. Reilly has perhaps an unpopular opinion on the new popular film category proposed by the organization behind the Academy Awards. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Christopher Katsarov. John C. Reilly and other TIFF stars weigh in on Oscars popular film categorycenter_img TORONTO – John C. Reilly has what might be an unpopular opinion on the popular film category being proposed at the Academy Awards.“I do think there’s room in the Oscars (for it),” the Oscar-nominated actor said in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he’s starring in the darkly comic western “The Sisters Brothers,” which he also co-produced.“If you want to say ‘popular,’ well, let’s just go for the pure definition of the word — the most people that showed up, that’s the most popular. Like, why not? Then it’s not even a competition.“Then it’s just like, by the end of the year, by this date, whatever movie made the most, that’s going to have a spot in the awards. I think that’s a cool thing. Rather than people being told what to like, it’s just a representation of what we did like.”The topic became a hot one at the festival after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced last Thursday it had suspended plans to award a new Oscar for popular films at the upcoming ceremony. The category “merits further study,” it said in a statement.The academy was reacting to widespread backlash over last month’s announcement of the new category, which is part of several changes being made to keep the Oscars “relevant in a changing world.”“It’s a really crazy idea to have a category like that,” said Micah Bloomberg, who co-created the popular “Homecoming” podcast and co-wrote the upcoming Amazon series adaptation that’s at the festival.“How do you qualify a movie as popular and what does that mean? I just fundamentally didn’t understand what they were trying to do other than just give more awards.“And I think there is this stink to it from the beginning that it was like a step-kid category, that it was never going to be the same thing as having a best picture (nomination).”Kim Masters, editor-at-large for The Hollywood Reporter, said it didn’t seem to be a well-thought-out idea.“Many people were baffled: What does it mean?” Masters said in a phone interview from Los Angeles.“They seemed to have reacted to pressure to improve the ratings of the telecast without necessarily considering what the impact would be.”Masters noted the academy “has a very large, cumbersome board” that has had trouble weighing the ratings interests of ABC owner Disney against the desires of those in the craft and assistant categories to be represented on the Oscars show.This year’s Oscars saw historically low ratings and the academy now plans to shorten next year’s show to three hours, partly by handing out some trophies during commercial breaks.The academy says it will rotate the categories that are not in the live broadcast from year to year, but it’s still a blow to some academy members, said Masters.The popular film category is the academy’s second attempt to recognize movies with mass appeal, after it started allowing up to 10 films to be nominated for best picture in 2009.But many in the industry say the prestigious Oscars isn’t the right place for such an award, noting such a category is already covered by the People’s Choice Awards.“The Oscars, that’s not why they started,” said “Homecoming” cast member Jeremy Allen White.“It wasn’t for pop film. There are great movies that are blockbusters and that people can enjoy, but I don’t think it would have been true to the beginning of why the academy was put together.”But Reilly said he feels a popular film category gives significance to projects the public has embraced.He said he’d love to see the category modelled after the one recently created by France’s Cesar Award academy, which goes to the film with the most ticket sales in the previous year.“It’s very democratic, it’s very clear, you don’t have to vote on it,” Reilly said.“The people vote and I think that’s actually a really cool thing, because then that transcends whatever opinions or tastemakers think of this or that.“It really gives the audience a clear voice. It’s like a vote — you vote with your dollars and the most dollars gets recognized. I think that’s a really elegant kind of simple way to get to the point.”Joel Edgerton, who directed and stars in “Boy Erased,” sees room at the Oscars for a category that draws more attention to comedies.“People get recognized for comic turns, but it’s really rare,” he said, pointing to Kevin Kline’s win for “A Fish Called Wanda,” and Tiffany Haddish’s breakout role in “Girls Trip,” which was snubbed at the Oscars.With a comedy category he said smaller films, like his recent favourite “The Death of Stalin,” would have a global platform.“The films that quite often get lost are comedies,” he added.“That might open up a can of worms … but why the hell not?”—With files from David Friendlast_img read more
